New Delhi: India will now play Test matches next December. The Test series against South Africa starts on December 17. The series consists of three tests. It is certain that some of the players who performed poorly on the tour of England will lose their places. There is no doubt that one of them will be Ajinkya Rahane. It is doubtful whether the player will once again get a chance in the Indian jersey.
Former Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel shares the same. Parthiv says Rahane will not be able to return to the Indian team. “It simply came to our notice then. He often misses the footwork. Until 2016, Rahane had an average of 51.04. Then his graph will drop. The form was lost. That means instability.
The question arises against players who have been playing in bad form for a long time. Perhaps the Oval was the last innings he played for India. We will only remember Rahane when he scores another big score. Until then, people will stop talking about the star. “
Rahane scored just 109 runs in seven innings against England. This would include a half-century. His other scores are 5, 1, 18, 10, 14, 0. Former players VVS Laxman and Zaheer Khan have all been critical of Rahane.
